Theories/Methodologies I and II
The seminar addressed phd-, doctoral and other advanced students, who are working in the field of arts-based research. The seminar took its starting point from the research interests and artistic practices of the participants. Following these lines of investigations, each meeting was organized around one specific topic. The discussions found common ground in an in-depth investigation of critical epistemologies, as they have been developed in the context of feminist, queer, postcolonial, ecological, postmarxist and other political and emancipatory projects. The participants presented and discussed theoretical topics/texts as well as recent art works and their methodologies, especially those, which are concerned with a critique of social hierarchies and exclusions or with the development of heterotopic visions.
